ST. PETERSBURG — With the Nov. 5 election approaching, the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections mailed nearly 61,000 ballots to St. Petersburg voters on Tuesday.
Mayor Bill Foster and challenger Rick Kriseman are locked in a tight race that will be decided Nov. 5, along with four council seats.
Another 28,000 ballots went to voters in Clearwater and Kenneth City. Clearwater voters will decide whether to allow the city to negotiate a 60-year lease with the Clearwater Marine Aquarium so the aquarium can build a new $160.5 million facility on the downtown property where City Hall now stands. Kenneth City voters will be asked whether the city should change from a council form of government to a council/manager form of government.
Monday is the deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 5 election.
